Dr. Chris Blosser, a nephrologist at UW Medicine, began to realize his dream of accelerating research for solid organ transplant and cancer treatment and for providing coordinated care to such patients with complex medical needs three years ago when he established the Center for Innovations in Cancer & Transplant [CICT] at the University of Washington and the Cancer and Organ Transplant Clinic [COTC] at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. Part of the inspiration for the center arose after the deaths of his mother and his aunt.
